Els, I don't know how I missed this review. I know it's been months but I just had say how impressive this suit is. It's perfection, as is always the case with your work. Thank you.

WOW!! Absolutely *GORGEOUS*!! Thank you for such a detailed review-it's so inspiring to see a jacket made from an inspiration piece, with no pattern. The suit is beautiful.

I'm with Vibek - if only I was rich, I'd keep you busy too :) I love your jacket, and thank you so much for showing us all these details! Would you mind showing the flat pattern of the collar too? Glad to see you upgraded your rating to reflect reality!

Vibek said...
Wonderful suit. If I were rich, I'd keep you for my very own clothier and shower you with gold every time you made me something like that.

Oh my GOODNESS! I can only echo what drsue said- I wish I was your model. Absolutely lovely and your photos of the details in your reviews are something that I would like to print and sit with a cup of tea and just try to soak it all in. You really are a master. Thank you.

Totally wonderful!!! I wish I was your model.

This is fabulous. Thank you for sharing, we are so lucky to be able to see details of your creative process.

els said...
Thank you all for the flattering comments. I did add the pictures because most of you want to read a pattern review and because this suit is not made from a commercial pattern you would not be helped with a final picture of the outfit alone. So the only thing I could do to be of any help was making pictures to show you some of the details.

els, that is beautiful! Heck, your muslin is beautiful. Is there any way it could become a dickie inside a simple jacket? Seems a shame to waste it.
